Effects of crystallite size on the structure and magnetism of ferrihydrite

The structure and magnetic properties of nano-sized (1.6 to 4.4 nm) ferrihydrite samples are systematically investigated through a combination of X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray pair distribution function (PDF), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and magnetic analyses.

Accumulation of zinc, copper, or cerium in carrot (Daucus carota) exposed to metal oxide nanoparticles and metal ions

The ionic forms of Zn, Cu, and Ce are transported into carrot taproots, while nanomaterial forms of ZnO, CuO, and CeO2 were largely screened by the taproot outer periderm layer.

Formation of supported lipid bilayers containing phase-segregated domains and their interaction with gold nanoparticles

Here we describe a method to form phase-segregated domain-containing supported lipid bilayers on silica substrates and demonstrate that the presence of these domains can alter nanoparticle interaction with bilayers.
